Turkey has agreed to allow U.S. aircraft to fly over its territory for a war with Iraq, a Turkish military official said.

Two air corridors will be opened for the U.S. aircraft, the official said, speaking on customary condition of anonymity.

The U.S. flights will begin immediately, private CNN-Turk television reported.
